Suggested Reading

I save a lot of blog posts and articles that I find online, but it seems like such a waste simply to throw them up on Twitter where they will get lost in the daily tweet-waves. Instead, I’ve decided to post some links to things I’ve been reading on my blog. As a caveat, while I am posting all of these links because I think they are interesting, thought-provoking and valuable to social justice discourse, it does not mean that I necessarily agree with all of the perspectives here, or that there is a unifying theme to what I post on this page. In fact, some of them make me uncomfortable and challenge some of my own perspectives on social justice in society. However, they are all fantastically well-written pieces that I think should be read and thought about. Also, go visit the blogs of these authors and read the rest of their work!
